Grassfed Yogurt: What Are The Health Benefits?

Grassfed Yogurt Health Benefits Groovy Green Livin

Have you noticed that there seem to be more and more products with a “grassfed” label?  And it’s not just beef boasting the label, dairy products from milk to yogurt are also prominently displaying a “100% grassfed” label. Eager to learn more about this new addition to our labeling system, I had a chance to hear from Tim Joseph, the founder of Maple Hill Creamry and the supplier of the milk for all of Stonyfield’s “100% Grassfed” products.  Stonyfield just launched their 100% Grassfed yogurt in four delicious flavors (vanilla, plain, blueberry and strawberry).

Change the Way You Live and Eat! Book Review and Recipe: Eating Clean By Amie Valpone

Change the Way You Live and Eat! Book Review and Recipe: Eating Clean Groovy Green Livin

When a friend does amazing work I always like to share. Amie Valpone, the Editor-in-Chief of The Healthy Apple, just launched a new “cook book”, Eating Clean: The 21-Day Plan to Detox, Fight Inflammation, and Reset Your Body. Although her book contains over 200 recipes, it is really so much more than a traditional cookbook. I’ve been trying to remember when I met Amie for the first time. I think it was at a blogging conference in New York City in 2012. We were both at a breakfast sponsored by Stonyfield and happened to be sitting together. I was immediately drawn to Amie’s charm...

Is There Asbestos In Your Child's School

This post about was originally published at Moms Clean Air Force Do you know if your child’s school building has asbestos? When we send our children off to school each morning there’s an underlying assumption that they are headed to a safe and healthy environment for learning. Unfortunately that’s not always the case.
